Jimmy Fallon wrote a terrible song about the new COVID variant. Usually, late-night show songs are cringe and stupid, but this is…cringe.
It sounds like he wanted to use the music from the B-52s’ hit Love Shack and wanted to sound like frontman Fred Schneider.
I transcribed it for you, so your ears don’t bleed.
There was Alpha, then Delta, then Omicron next, but this latest variant might be the best.
It’s XBB.1.5. Another brand of COVID-19 has arrived. It’s a new strain but it isn’t the same. Sounds more like Elon Musk’s kid’s name.
It’s XBB.1.5. Not UB40, who sings ‘Red Red Wine.’
Put on your mask when you’re inside a facility.
It could be a robot from a Star Wars trilogy.
It’s XBB.1.5. Not OMG or MP3 or TCBY or an eye chart made by a really high guy. Sounds like the password of your parents’ Wi-Fi.
It’s XBB.1.5. XBB.1.5
You’ll notice that Fallon and his band aren’t wearing masks but tell you to wear one in a facility.
Also, the variant is an Omicron subvariant.
The line about Musk’s kid is funny or a Star Wars robot. But not in this…whatever you want to call it.
BONUS FLASHBACK! Stephen Colbert had a song about the vaccine.
Establishment lib comedians like Colbert have become such unfunny DNC propagandists, you wonder if somewhere on the inside they miss actually trying to make people laugh for a living instead
